Our purpose . . .

We talk about race all the time. We speak volumes with our silence, unspoken rules and expectations in every way we engage the world. The restrictive codes, along with the permissions of oppression and privilege that uphold the construct of race, racism and systemic racism in America, are hidden in plain sight. When truth is spoken, education occurs and we engage in authentic relationships, white supremacy culture and characteristics that we all participate in, are revealed. Truth, education and authentic relationships expose the injustices, just like a blacklight reveals our surroundings hidden in plain sight, so that we may have a clearer understanding of ourselves and who we are in our world.

Starting a real conversation about race may be difficult, and the conversations we begin will never be concluded, yet we need to be focused on the way we hold conversations with each other as we talk about race. In a post George Floyd world, we need to start the conversation with authenticity and intentionally, centering truth with respect and accountability. Healing race, racism and systemic racism is the only way to restore us to our full humanity.

Racial Healing Circles are a different way of talking about race/ism that is relational, preemptive, and proactive. The circle process taps into both ancient practices and modern processes to create trust and belonging. We strive to listen to each other, learn from and with each other which brings liberation and healing - together.

For together we hurt each other; doesn't it make sense to heal together too?
